Let It Rip: Right-to-work and other lame duck legislation

Posted: Updated:

By Fox 2 News Staff

It has been a busy week for the lame duck session of the state legislature.  First right-to-work, then a host of other controversial bills, including restrictions on abortions, a push to allow guns in churches and schools and a new version of the old emergency manager law.

Will what happened this week set the stage for a political civil war?  Joining Huel Perkins on our panels to discuss are Debbie Dingell, Rocky Raczkowski, Steve Hood, Henry Payne and Charlie Langton.

Plus, Charlie Langton takes "Let It Rip" on the road and asks people what they really know about the new right-to-work law.
